HJF, a Korean supplier of meat and sauces, invested in cooking equipment manufactured by Belgium’s Infrabaker International. The industrial oven was purchased to meet demand for grilled chicken breast.
The equipment will be installed at HJF’s new production plant in Chungcheongnam-do, South Korea. The facility will offer room for approximately 80 new employees. Production on the oven is expected to start in the second quarter of 2019.
In 2014, HJF purchased an industrial oven for what was reportedly the first industrial-scale production of fully direct-grilled products in Korea. It was the company’s objective to further expand the availability of healthier and more ecological processed foods to customers in Asia using Infrabaker’s technology.
